Hey dude, nice to hear from you. This is my 7th trip there over the past 6 years. I have a sweet connection there with the Art of Living Foundation in Bangalore for the past ten years.

I am going to Delhi, my best friend, who lives in the Bay Area is getting married. This time though, I will go to Rishikesh for three days, then to the Taj. Just one week. I will go to Bangalore in June just before I fly back to NY for 5 weeks.

Where did you go, what did you do, what specific music did you dig, classical or the Bollywood hits or the Punjabi music, Bhangra? I am really into classical Indian Folk Music and have been recreating some ancient Sanskit chants over the past few years. I've posted my site beofore, but if you did not see it, here it is:

Would love to hear your stories and see some cool pics.

I will have to e-mail you some time when I get the time. I am off shortly to visit my girlfriend for the weekend, but sometime when I get back, I should have some time. But in the mean time, the basics:
Where: mostly in Bihar, Purnia district, in the city of Purnia. Also spent time in a lot of tiny poor villiages. I spent about a week in Delhi, and did make the day trip out to the Taj.
Music: I love Indian Classical music, but what I fell in love with were the old tribal tunes of the Santali tribe, local to that area of India.

I'll email with more at a later date
